[TW: harassment, threats, stalking, violence, slurs, racism]
So, someone decided to post this submission with a link to medievalpoc to a subreddit called “Tumblr In Action” this morning.
Let’s stop pretending we have no idea where this comes from:
And can we stop pretending as if these supposed “rules” actually mean anything, or are ever actually enforced:
Medievalpoc has received tens of thousands of hits from this particular subreddit from more than 60 separate threads, some of which have hundreds of derogatory comments, using slurs, threats, and racist ‘jokes’.
And it is somehow a “coincidence” that I have had to speak to police four times and make official reports due to threats, stalking, harassment, and other nastiness? That people have followed me around in person without my knowledge or consent because of this? People have circumvented the “ignore” function by creating accounts just to send racial slurs and threats.
The rest of this is going under a cut, because it is truly horrific. Please proceed with caution.
I don’t think I ever showed you guys this but we have a dog named Booker and this is his tag.
what are you thinking about? you.
